How pathetic is this? Forbes runs a link bait story called The Web Celeb 25. It’s a list of the “biggest, brightest and most influential people on the Internet.”

Andy Beal ran a notice about it in a post called Who’s Missing From Forbes’ Web Celeb 25 List?. It took me an instant to see that the Forbes list is targeted to men. The majority of the names of the list are men. I counted three women out of twenty-five men.

What do they use for an image to illustrate the piece at Forbes (and Andy’s site, but he only followed Forbes’ lead)?

A woman in a strapless red gown!
